The Watering Hole: August 23 — Back to School

Today is the day!  It’s back to school for me, and I’m really looking forward to this year — my final two semesters.  Here’s what’s on the schedule this semester:  Women’s Studies, Geography, History, Personality and Social Development, and my peer-advising internship.

For your entertainment, a few quotes about education:

Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.
~George Washington Carver

I read Shakespeare and the Bible, and I can shoot dice. That’s what I call a liberal education.
~Tallulah Bankhead

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

There is nothing so stupid as the educated man if you get him off the thing he was educated in.
~Will Rogers

Why should society feel responsible only for the education of children, and not for the education of all adults of every age?
~Erich Fromm

This is our daily open thread — dazzle us with brilliance or baffle us with bullshit.
